Last week, I turned 28, and there’s a weird feeling that came with it.
It’s not so much of a fear of getting older, but more like the fear of running out of time. The clock is ticking, but I feel like I haven’t done so much. I’m only a year older than a few weeks ago (technically), and yet the difference feels massive. Saying “I’m 28 and looking for a job” sounds a lot worse than “I’m 27 and looking for a job”.
I have a lot of things planned for my life, and where I am now is not how I pictured life at 28 would be.
Sometimes Many times, I can feel frustration and self-doubt starting to get into me, and it knocks off my confidence pretty badly. I feel that I should’ve done and achieved more in this age, and yet here I am, still struggling to build a career in a place that is completely new.
